Today Paul Revere is a household name, but how many people know how multi-talented and complex Revere actually was? He personifies the transformation of the working world in America through his various occupations, which included silversmith, engraver, dentist, hardware merchant, bell and cannon founder, and sheet-copper manufacturer. Our panelists will discuss Revere as patriot, craftsman, metallurgist, and early American industrialist in order to place him in context with his colonial compatriots and to celebrate the 200th anniversary of his death.
